In My Mailbox (8)


In My Mailbox is a weekly meme started by The Story Siren with inspiration from Pop Culture Junkie

From Madam Siren: "The idea behind IMM was not only to put new books on your radar but to also encourage blogger interaction. IMM explores the weekly contents of my mailbox & books bought. And sometimes other fun goodies.  Anyone can participate in IMM and you are not limited to only sharing books that arrive via your mailbox. You can also share books that you've bought or books that you've gotten at the library."

Please join us in getting to know one another and sharing great reads! 

Here's the book I picked up this week:

I was so busy this last week that I wasn't able to pick up more normal haul, but I did win a book from the wonderful Crystal at Reading Between the Wines and just received it in the mail yesterday.  She originally received it from the author, so that was a rather awesome bonus.  Thanks, Crystal!

Jane and the Damned (Immortal Jane Austen #1)
by Janet Mullany

Synopsis

Aspiring writer Jane Austen knows that respectable young ladies like herself are supposed to shun the Damned—the beautiful, fashionable, exquisitely seductive vampires who are all the rage in Georgian England in 1797. So when an innocent (she believes) flirtation results in her being turned—by an absolute cad of a bloodsucker—she acquiesces to her family’s wishes and departs for Bath to take the waters, the only known cure.
 
But what she encounters there is completely unexpected: perilous jealousies and further betrayals, a new friendship and a possible love. Yet all that must be put aside when the warring French invade unsuspecting Bath—and the streets run red with good English blood. Suddenly only the staunchly British Damned can defend the nation they love . . . with Jane Austen leading the charge at the battle’s forefront.

Heads up for this week: be sure to check back here for my review of Bumped by Megan McCafferty!
Also, take a moment and check out my most recent review of the wonderful Raw Blue by Kirsty Eagar!
